. >> the president has spain to speaker boehner and other leaders about plain going forward. what else do we know? >> reporter: it's significant. president obama called these leaders within the hours of his re-election sending a strong signal that he's serious about bipartisanship and working with the leaders and reaching across the aisle to get a compromise on the fiscal cliff and work through this it. the message he sent to the leaders is we need to work together to resolve this. i would point out that house speaker john boehner in his press conference yesterday echoed the president's sentiments to some extent saying he's willing to work with the president on the issue of taxes. that's the big issue here in washington. so signalling that he would be willing to work with the president. now, will this actually happen? of course, the republican conference is larger than the house, so speaker boehner is saying something in his conference going along with it are two different things. they're in a wait and see mode. we won't see the crisis of debt debate in the summer of 2011. >> i hope you're right.
